Hiking & Mountaineering Activities

Sometimes you climb to the top of a 'mountain' and it is just a hike. Other times, you summit a peak and it is called 'mountaineering'. I'm no expert, but I say that if its over 14,000 feet, it qualifies as a Mountain! Hence, the attraction of the Colorado 14ers. At that elevation, you noticeably feel the oxyen deprevation / elevation sickness, if you are not acclimatized, and you are exercising even semi-intensely.
